It is important to be able to utilize many of the city scenery, terrain imagery, and airport models that already exist for FSX. It would be preferable if the price remain the same unless there is an end user relationship where the scenery price can be passed along to the end consumer. At this moment in time, users of Prepar3D will be looking for customers and developers who can utilize some of this excellent scenery to share their addons. The base level scenery is just not good enough and would make Prepar3D look ancient. Using an i7 980x and Nvidia 480 (or equivalents) would provide excellent framerates. I suggest some relationships be established with vendors such as FlyTampa, fsdreamteam, pc-aviator MegasceneryEarth, Aerosoft, ORBX, and others. Some of these vendor's scenery will need modifications due to their expected connection to FSX installations so there would be a development cost. But to get traction and momentum, any concept of making the developers and early exhibitors pay 10x to 100x the cost for said scenery will be VERY counterproductive.
